The SourceTree mac app has a problem with automatically detected file changes. More specifically the File Status in Workspace is empty until I choose the Fetch command from the toolbar. After that, my file changes are available. It used to work though. Is there any setting for watching for changes automatically?
If you are wanting to watch for changes being made in the remote repository, you want to open Options and look for something like "Check default remotes for changes every X minutes".
If you want it to watch your working copy for changes (changes you are making locally with your file editors) it should be doing that automatically. If it seems behind, you can hit F5 instead of Fetch to force it to check the status of the local files.
For local changes, F5 should be a simpler workaround. It refreshes the UI without making any calls to your remotes.
There is no reason I know of why it shouldn't refresh automatically. If you don't get a better answer in a day or so, you might post a bug report on jira.atlassian.com.
